Hi, I sterted my adventure with esk8 building with a build that was supposed to look like boosted board, I completed it but after shredding it hundreds of kilometes my 7S2P lipo failed (probably because of vibrations and too high amp draw)
Here is original link to it’s build thread https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=73230 (this was in the times there was no electric-skateboard.builders forum arround )
Then my I bought my trampa and had another project to work on, so it kinda waited for better times to be revived. From time to time I completed some small steps, one was to make vanguard deck more “boosted like” so I sanded sprayed on grip tape, graphics, unfortunately like @whitepony I sanded through bambo veneer and exposed glass fiber beneath it. Initially I wished vanguard was a little bit stiffer so I added bidirectional glass fiber on top and bottom then applied new bamboo veneer, everything got coated with clear car paint.
Decided to hide power wires under grip tape like boosted does, so I used 10mm wide flat braided copper wire
I had two VESCs laying arround from my mountainboard project (that, I though at this time, were good ) and decided to use them instead of my trusty old APS 120A twin ESC, BUT it turned out VESCs were bricked so I had to toss my idea (I might send them to get repaired), even though I had everything ready to install them
Also board got new motor mounts that I milled manually, they’re made out of 7075 aluminium, anodised black, motor mounting plates are made out of heat threated stainless steel.
My old trusty NTM 50-60 motors got new shafts turned on the lathe, pulleys are mounted via circlips, are keywayed and so on belt is HTD 3M 15mm wide. I also installed hall sensors in motors, but for now I can’t use them as my ESC does not suport them (VESC would )
I made battery pack out of 18650 samsung 25R cells, it’s 8S4P config (because of high KV of motors I didn’t want to go higher with voltage),
Also what I missed in my first incarnation of this build what front light, so I made special riser pad with integrated lights (cheap LEDs from aliexpress, turned, to be as wide as riser.
Enclosures are the same as in first version of this board, so I won’t go into details here, You can read everything on ES, and NO I DON’T SELL THEM (don’t have time to make ones for sell)
Here is the board charging and balancing cells
And finally some photos of finished build
And here is my entire collection of my builds
